Can you imagine? People are paying up to $300 a month to have professionals take care of their orchids when they are not in bloom. Imagine you could offer this too. I saw the article was from California and it could very well be a regional phenomenon. Have you ever know of anyone into orchids? Or to this length?

Americans spend hundreds a month for orchid babysitters - Like parents packing children off to camp, orchid lovers across the country are paying hundreds of dollars each month to professionals take care of the plants when they're not in bloom.

"I have the sickness," admits Jeff Doney, a San Francisco architect who estimates his collection of 200 orchids is worth about $10,000. He spends $300 a month boarding his plants at California Orchids in Bolinas. "I might be driving a new Jaguar for the same price."
